The Medical Officer in Charge Residence continued to serve as a government dwelling for the hospital director into the 1990s. The facility has been vacant for some time and was recently acquired by the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. The residence is scheduled for demolition in the near future, and the site will become part of the national cemetery.
